When I Left – Cambria Jones

Sometimes, in love

as in death,
the end

with body a soul
poured out.

(tongue between
my teeth speech
behind my eyes
blood within
my words)


leave me
no more fear.

You hollow pit; you knew

the shoulds and should
nots. You did not know

the end.

(words within my eyes
between my teeth tongue
again with speech)

But I have,
and oh,
and now,

I am come back to life.

Cambria Jones was born in and currently resides just outside the beautiful sister cities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. She enjoys a good cup of coffee and people watching. Her most recent embarrassing moment was setting off the alarms at her favorite art museum by falling into a sculpture.
